      OH what a wonderful dress. How much fun it would be
      to make this. Our (daughter & I) next project is a
      1876 7th Calvery Dress Jacket, Enlisted man, and a
      Ball gown for the wife. It will be used for the
      Battle of the Little Big Horn Reinactment next June.
      This should be a fun projuct also. At present I am
      finishing a few Western shirts and A Gentelmans Frock
      Coat (1850). I live near Tombstone AZ so hence the
      western attire. Take care and good luck. Peggy

        And, thank you for the compliments. I do have to say that I added a
        few beads, but the appliques were from an old piece of wedding lace.
        It's not for a particular ballet, I just wanted to make one to see if
        I could do it.

        I'm working on Nutcracker costumes for a local ballet company right
        now, I'll post pictures of those when they are complete.

                      Recently (two weeks ago) I bought a custom made
                      corset, for the smashing price of $150.00. Long story
                      short, I wore it for one day and had bloody scabbs
                      from where the boning had gone through the corset, my
                      chemise and me. The woman refuses to take the corset
                      back because she said I am to big for it.
                      First of all this thing was supposed to have been
                      custom made, and it had 2 1/2 inches of spring in the
                      back.

                      I am not that knowledgeable about corsets, but I
                      thought that amount of spring was within the fitting
                      range. The corset was comfortable with the exception
                      of where it was jabbing me in the back.


                      Due to this experiance, I am looking to make my own. I
                      found several sites where I can get the boning, busks,
                      and other materials.

                      What is a good fabric to make a corset out of? As a
                      re-enactor I wear mine 3 to 5 days a week, from May to
                      October. Would a good quality silk be as durable as I
                      would need it to be? What is a good choice for the
                      backing of the corset?

                      I am also looking for the tips and tricks and what to
                      avoid from those who have made corsets.

                      Thank you much
                      Terri Lee

                        Since your corset will have so much use, you might want to spend the money and make your corset out of Coutil. It's a fabric especially for corsets since it wont stretch like a twill, it's an all natural cotton, and it is lightweight but still sturdy enough that bones (if they are tipped correctly) wont go through it. Lacis is a shop in Berkeley, CA that has everything you need to make corsets including the coutil, bones, laces and patterns if you need help. You can find them online. It's an addictively fabulous store!!!!!

                          It actually dates a little later than the Civil War era, but would be
                          serviceable for your purposes. If you really want to be very
                          accurate, Past Patterns is an excellent source; they have a variety
                          of patterns.

                          I've found that using coutil is comfortable (it breathes well) and
                          very durable. You can buy coutil fabric at most costume supply
                          houses, including AlterYears:

                          http://www.alteryears.com/supplies/Corset_sup.html

                          AlterYears also sells boning. I suggest the 1/4 inch wide flat steel
                          boning. It comes in a variety of sizes, so you don't need to worry
                          about cutting it and them trying to seal off the ends so they don't
                          dig into your skin. It also is firm, yet flexible. In addition, they
                          sell bone casing, which is helpful, although whenever possible, I
                          prefer to stitch channels for the boning.

                          Have fun!
